he Wells System

Wells International  In the modern, increasingly interdependent and complex world, an international education is an absolute necessity – a balanced education, teaching not only to the mind, but also to the heart. It is vital to begin such an international experience from early childhood. At Wells International School and Kindergarten, we understand the importance of such a learning experience. We believe that, while each child is unique, there are qualities that each will need in order to join global society. All students need to learn respect for themselves as well as others, attain open-mindedness and tolerance, and acquire the ability to take responsibility for their actions. We try to promote such qualities by providing a truly international education, helping each child attain a multi-cultural perspective while encouraging each to appreciate his or her own unique cultural background. Constantly striving for academic excellence, we encourage students to become life-long learners by helping them develop necessary attitudes and skills, ensuring their success in the global international community of tomorrow.

School History

In the fall of 1998, the Wells International Kindergarten (formerly EverClever Kindergarten) welcomed its first students on Sukhumvit Soi 47. As the school grew with children joining from the surrounding community, plans were already in the making for a primary school campus at nearby Sukhumvit Soi 51. In 2003, the Wells International School – Thong Lor Campus accepted its first students, ranging from grades 1 to 5, and expanding to grade 6 the following year. In 2005, construction began on a secondary school about 5 kilometers down Sukhumvit Road, and in the fall of 2006, the Wells International School – On Nut Campus opened to grades 1 to 12. Starting with just 4 kindergarten students back in 1998, the Wells community has grown to a current enrollment of approximately 1000.

It saw off its first graduating class in June of 2010, as the graduates moved on to prestigious universities in the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. The 2011-2012 school year heralded major changes, as Wells International Kindergarten at Phrom Phong closed its doors, moving to the Thong Lo campus, and the new Bang Na campus opened for kindergarten students on Srinakarin 62.Our most recent expansion occurred when our new Primary School Building opened up in 2015 at the Bangna Campus.

Academics & Extra-curricular Activities

Wells International School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), licensed by the Thai Ministry of Education and a member of the International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT).

Mission Statement

The mission of Wells International School is to deliver a quality, college preparatory education to a diverse, international group of students in a nurturing environment of creativity and discovery, which inspires a passion for learning, fosters a sense of wonder and curiosity, and teaches responsible, global citizenship through a collaboration between the home and school community.

Vision

The vision of Wells International School is to be globally recognized for its supportive and innovative educational programs that empower each student to achieve his or her highest potential.

Education for Life

Wells International School aims to provide quality education and foster character development in a caring community. The philosophy of Wells is directly linked to the desired attributes and traits needed throughout childhood in order to progress successfully in life. We capitalize on the uniqueness of all students, encouraging them to be communicators and thinkers who are principled, determined, well-balanced, caring, open-minded and knowledgeable. When combined, these attributes create a wholesome profile of an internationally-minded student.

Why Wells?

Education is not only the acquisition of knowledge or the training necessary to succeed in single vocations. In the increasingly global era, schools must recognize that more is needed: Education in the modern world requires the acquisition of a broad range of skills across a wide range of fields, the ability to make connections and critically evaluate knowledge, and the commitment to apply the skills one gains for the benefit of both the local and global communities. Wells International School adopts a progressive, best-practices approach based on American learning standards, which encourage students to think creatively, to ask critical questions, to work independently and in groups, and to take responsibility for both their actions and those of their community. From the youngest students to the administrative leadership team, all members of the Wells community thus seek to continually grow and improve. Students at Wells International School benefit from:

  • An intensive, university-preparatory curriculum based on American standards and focused on experiential learning and real-life application
  • A wide range of academic support, including TOEFL, PSAT and SAT prep; university and career counseling; academic support clubs; and internship and job shadow opportunities at major universities and organizations
  • Access to individualized instruction from highly trained staff, approximately 70% of whom possess or are pursuing advanced graduate diplomas or degrees in education or their subject areas

 

A Learning Community Dedicated to Changing the World

Instructors at Wells International School do not simply teach because it is their job, nor do the many students learn simply because they must. The Wells community is passionate about education and learning as an end in itself. The staff and students at Wells recognize that no individual can stand alone, and that being part of a school requires a commitment to working with all members of a group.  Wells is never satisfied with the status quo, but rather strives to better itself and the surrounding community. Without this growth and change, progress does not exist. Wells International School is truly committed to its credo: Changing the world, one student at a time…
